This week, Christina Caldwell brings us the story of iamwe, a Phoenix-based indie rock band. The band's forthcoming record She's a Soldier tells the tale of a 100-year-old Englishwoman. "We're all fighting our own personal wars," the band says.
Anthrax members Joey Belladona and Charlie Belante discuss the band's killer new record, Worship Music, and the...um...complications involving the group's band-name following 9/11, and Lenni Rosenblum talks music genre semantics about the "indie band" Foster the People. We've also got short previews on Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Down, Nappy Roots, Carla Bozulich, and Cheap Time.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
